The Kartio glassware series channels the pure essence of Franck’s philosophy into what was an object of continuous fascination for the artist: the everyday drinking glass. Striking the perfect balance between material and geometric form, the Kartio tumbler from 1958 is a legendary design beyond any trend. The wide and versatile color palette perfectly represents Iittala’s knowledge of colored glass. Simple yet durable design.
Fluid and elegant, bold and functional, Göran Hongell's Aarne barware collection epitomizes timeless style that transcends the trends of the moment. Aarne barware quickly became the standard for essential barware in the 1950's, and it remains just as essential today. To mark Iittala’s 100th Glassware Anniversary in 1981, Aarne was brought back in production with additional glasses for champagne and whisky. In 1988, Aarne won the American Table Top Award.
This glass tumbler made a splash when design legend, Aino Aalto, debut it over eighty years ago. Inspired by ripples in the water, the simple space-saving form permits stacking and versatility. A modern classic, the tumblers are available in several colors and two sizes.

In 1936, Alvar Aalto created this classic series. The Alvar Aalto Collection has been a staple of modern Scandinavian design and the most iconic series in the Iittala range ever since. Today, just as then, each and every piece in the Alvar Aalto Collection is mouth blown at the Iittala glass factory. Created in a wide range of colours and sizes, a votive from the Aalto Collection is a pleasure to own or give as a gift. Designed by Alvar Aalto, Pentagon Design 1936
